Episode 6: Ayurveda for Mental Health

Dr. Avanti is a physician who, after medical training in emergency medicine, began a journey to find her joy again and to help people truly heal.  This calling has led her to training in a variety of healing traditions and modalities:  Ayurveda, energy healing modalities including Pranic Healing and Reiki, plant-based nutrition and Yoga Therapy.  She integrates these intuitive healing systems and traditions in her writing, research and teaching.  She lectures extensively to medical students and physicians, as well as a broad-range of audiences throughout the country.  The subjects of these talks range from scientific talks on various traditional healing systems to interactive dialogues on meditation, yoga, lifestyle and nutrition.
